Theater Thursday

From the mind of Joseph Patrick and the website Humans Invent, this profile on the The Flying Scotsman looks into Graeme Obree’s latest goal: the human-powered land speed record.

The Return of Graeme Obree

“Meet Graeme Obree. “When a true genius appears, you can know him by this sign: that all the dunces are in a confederacy against him.”

These words of wisdom from Jonathan Swift certainly apply to Graeme Obree and his treatment in the world of cycling. A man castigated for triumphing innovation. The Flying Scotsman broke the World Hour record twice and won the World Championships on two occasions, combining ruthless ambition and a unique investigative engineering nous that propelled him ahead of his peers.”
